Churchill and Stalin are 'about to issue a world-rocking declaration which may involve a demand for Germany's surrender. | ,- The Fuehrer's address bears the I ear-marks of being an attempt tq whip his followers into line with , the tale that they are doomed if i they capitulate to the Allies. His talk was made just before the Royal Air Force began its all-out ' f. destruction of Berlin, and Propa- j ganda Minister Joe Goebeels prob- '" ably thought the terrors of the ^bombardment would lend point to ^his master's highly cynical mood. Also, Berlin insists that the big three are already meeting in e Cairo. " One point Hitler made was that "the nation which loses this war cease to exist." That certainly is true, and it h,as *&.,. . an ominous sound, especially when r the bare fact is stated, without ex- planhan a shrewd ruse which Hitler appears to have employed. The Third Reich is due tp disap- j pear. The German nation politic ' be .start. out — for a fr,esh That's far from being as harsh Jjt „' as it looks at first glance, however. & *~ What it really means is that Hitler's own goose is cooked and that his regime is to be destroyed. The Allies have no intention of ham-' stringing the German race. The ^German' people will be permitte4 _io create a new government and 'to work out their own destiny — ', provided they keep to the straight ".and narrow path and avoid further .t, r entanglements with Nazism and >B j^russian militarism. J? ,'i , Hitler himself has had no intent j^fc >Jion of according conquered na? tions any such privileges. The voice of Nazism long ago announced in '-• no uncertain terms that the van 7 "«M>ciuish£d,-peoples were .to be made t ,|tpVserjve--th.e master race. Their "terntroies were to be absorbed by >-,th Reich. , One of the most remarkable jpas r images in the master ganster's a.d- Sjlress was this: "As so often in the ipast, so today Providence will bd >stow no gifts on our nation in its -struggle for freedom and its fu- ure." Well, that's a hot one, especially coming from an anti-Christ. Thf Nazi chief certainly can't have any won't stick with him -— he hasn't given them a righteous cause for which.to fight. Brigandage is no inspiration for civilized peoples. Fin.ally Hitler tried to throw fear of Russia into his hearers. He declared that if the Allies won "then the barbarities of the steppes would sweep across the continent and destroy it as the base and source of human culture." The Nazi world-beater really has something there — provided we eUrnjn.ate the bitter and unjustifiable talk of barbarities and destruction of culture, and consider the basic thought which he has in mind, gamely tha.t Russia is going to domina.te the European continent after the war. This column has been saying that for months, arid I could write you a book on the politico-economic-military aspects of -the situation to prove it. •What Hitler recognizes — and it means his personal doom — is that a vast new power is being unleashed in Russia. The Soviet has made it clear, however, that it has no desire 'to see Germany destroyed, although the Nazi chief and his regime must go. 11 Led Planes (.continued From Page One) .toss..

Advices from Vichy said that a group of French generals sent Laval an open letter predicting Germany's ultimate defeat. The letter, it was said, had received considerable circulation by mysterious means in France where it svas reported causing a sensation. The reports said Ihe leller asked Laval lo face Ihese fads— 1—That the Allies now haye ^he edge on Germany in military power and are growing stronger. 2—That it would be physically impossible for Germany to muster enough strength to stop Allied armies of 2,000,000 men when they decide to invade Wcslern Europe. Marshal Henri Philippe Petain, known to have received a copy of the letter and was reported also anxious to make an llth hour con- cersation to the Allied cause. His luck of comment on the message, however, was not considered significant since it was doubtful thai the German occupation authorities would permit a statement.

Similarly it has been suggested in dispatches from London that an Allied statement to the German people, backed by Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin, might hasten the internal collapse of the Reich, especially since it would implement the forceful argument now being carried to Berlin by Allied bombers. Judged by various Allied commitments for the punishment of those responsible for the war, Germany's Nazi leaders can .expect no mercy for themselves.

It will issue farm livestock slaughter permits, handle the farm transportation program, including recommendations for the issuance of certificates for tires, off-highway gasoline and tractor fuel. These are only a few of the many important wartime jobs which the Committee will handle in this county. "Many of the farmers who become Tripplc-A committecmen must do.so at a personal sacrifice.

Hundreds of young men from Hcmpstead County attribute their promations, ability to adapt themselves to changing situations, and "knowing what to do," to their early Scouting experiences. Scouting is doing its part on the fighting front. On 'the Production Front — In modern war, the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Corps need equipment and in order to get OTIS equipment, special materials must be provided. Our Scouts have collected uncountable tons _of Rubber, Metal, Rags. Paper, in order that this waste material can become arms for victory.

Mississippi Raises Tax Token Ante Jackson, Miss. — (/P)—' The state tax commission, ordering several million new plastic tax tokens to increase a dwindling supply used in the collection of• the sales tax, also started a hunt for ^millions of missing tokens.

Who can make love, who can create it'.' She merely loved this man sitting here beside her with every breath she drew. He said: "If I thought she were really the way she tries to make people think—" Emily drew a deep breath. She said steadily: "She's not. She is, as you say, unhappy, and 1 think, frightened. She's acquired a certain veneer, a protective coloring. Underneath, she's sound and sweet. The right man would find her so." "Thanks," he said, after a while, and rose. "I'm overdue at the office," lie told her. Ho put his hand on her shoulder hard. "You're swell," he said gratefully. Long after lie had left her she sat there and felt Ihc tears spill down her face. Then she wiped them away and went back into the Ixouse. She hadn't let Nancy down, and she hadn't let herself down. Because sho believed all she had said. She knew Nancy, none better. What she didn't believe was that Jim was the man for Nancy, the man to call out all her latent tenderness and gentleness, to bring her happiness, to be made happy in his turn. She spoke to some unseen monitor as she went slowly upstairs. But what else could I have said? she asked helplessly. # * * AUTUMN blazed past, and Mrs. **• Edgar launched her campaign beginning the night that Emily, with extreme reluctance, dined at Ihe Edgar house, with a friendly, even affectionate hostess. After dinner she sent Frank up to the shot book. During his absence, much prolonged as the book was reposing in a bottom drawer of Mrs. Edgar's own desk, she offered Emily a cigaret and some advice. She said gently, "Frank's asked you to marry him, hasn't he?" Emily nodded, and waited.' "Of course, I would be delighted," Elsie Edgar assured her, and murmured something about her affection for the entire Hall family, "and yet—you will permit me to be honest?" "Of course," said Emily, suppressing a desire to laugh. "For both your sakes," said Mrs. Edgar smoothly, "it might not be wise—much as I would like to see it." Emily said, rather shortly; "I've refused him, Mrs. Edgar." "You used to call me Aunt Elsie," said the older woman. She added, "He doesn't believe that you'll go on refusing forever. Frank's very persistent." She added idly that, persistent or not, he was susceptible. "That pretty girl in New York—I disapproved of her, my dear. I hoped he'd get over it, and he did. And then I thought perhaps that, he and Nancy—" she smiled and 23, Twp. 19 S., Rge. 25 West. Oil and Gas Lease: 10-year term. Dated Oct. 14, 1943; filed Nov. 29, 1943.

"Good," said Mrs. Edgar. She added after a minute, "By the way, I haven't told anyone yet, not even Frank, but I am expecting a house guest. When I was in England years ago I met such a charming woman, Lady Eleanor Dawson. The younger daughter of the Duke of Molrey," she explained . gently.

Obsolete now because of the jeep, the harnesses had been taken out of moth balls and shines every three years for the past quarter century. Now they will be resold to harness manufacturers to be revamped for farm use. The gear, as well as 30,000 wooden mustard spoons, will be turned over to the procurement division of the treasury department for sale. The procurement division, acting as "second-hand man" for the government, has handled $28,000,000 | worth of surplus government property since it began operations lasl February. One procurement official said, "we have soup bowls, two cement plants in upstate New York, 1,500 horses, suspidors, five - gallon water coolers, silver lea sets from hotels taken over by the army and 44,000 seven ring notebooks among thousands of oilier Hems." - -J3> * f • - • Army Dog in Doghouse Cotfcyville, Kus. —I/I')— Duke, Ihe big, good nalured mascot at Coffeyville army air field, is in the dog house.
